The Best Flooring For Kitchens

If you are looking to purchase new flooring for your kitchen, there are a number of elements to consider before you decide which type of flooring will suit you, and your kitchen best.

Budget, style, durability, and maintenance are all things that you should give some thought to when searching for new kitchen flooring, as knowing what you require in relation to these points will help you to find which type of flooring you should aim for.

With many flooring types, such as laminate, which Quickstep hold a great range of, and tiles, the quality of the product you buy really depends on how much you are will to spend, which is why determining your budget is important.


Rather than choosing the cheapest option so you can save money, it is better to choose something that is at the top of your budget, as this will ensure that you get the best product for your money, and this will often mean that it looks better, and is more durable than cheaper options.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to spend loads, just that opting for a mid-range option is preferable to selecting the cheapest one available to you.

Hardwood, either engineered or solid, and both available from V4 Woodflooring, is a more expensive option than laminate or budget-friendly tiles, but it does add a touch of luxury to a kitchen, and is ideal if you are looking to create a farmhouse, rustic, or classic style space.

On the cheaper end of the scale is sheet vinyl flooring, available from companies such as Gerflor, which has a price that rivals even the cheapest laminate options, and is a popular choice for those furnishing kitchens in properties that they will be renting out, as it is also cheap to lay, and replace, much like laminate.

As kitchens are one of the most frequently used rooms in the home, choosing a flooring type that can deal with lots of footfall is important, as is making sure that your choice is durable, and able to survive spillages.

Hardwood is one of the flooring types that can perhaps suffer the most, as it is quite prone to being scratched, scuffed, or dented, and doesn’t cope well when it comes into contact with liquids. However, if you choose a hard hardwood, such as ash or oak, it will stay looking great for longer.
